FutureStarrthe Rick Ross House in Georgia
The sprawling new home of rap superstar and Rolls-Royce man-of-the-moment Rick Ross has just been hit with the tax bill, expected to total nearly $1 million. Ross, born William Leonard Roberts, put in $8 million of his own money so that, instead of paying taxes, he would benefit from the $7,000 worth of property upgrades.
Rick Ross: No, I have a friendship with Amar'e, but that's not how I found out about the house. I had my mother and sister looking for property in the Miami Beach area. My mother saw the house on her phone and immediately called me. The home had been listed for less than a week. My mother knows the things I love, what I am attracted to. When she sent me the link, I looked at the acreage and the nine-car garage and said, 'Let's look at this now.' They arranged for me to see the property. I think I was in the home 10 minutes before telling the agent, 'This is my house.'

Rick Ross purchased this home after Evander Holyfield lost it in foreclosure. The house is the largest residence in the state of Georgia and with his 350,000 gallon pool he now owns the largest swimming pool in the US. The house is said to have 109 rooms, including 12 bedrooms and 21 bathrooms. The 54,000 square foot home also has a bowling alley and home theatre. Also included in this home are an indoor swimming pool, a boxing gym and a recording studio. There is also an indoor basketball court. On the 235 acres lot, there sits a 7-stall barn, a baseball field with lights and scoreboard and a full guesthouse.
Rick Ross’ net worth is widely contested. It is believed to be anywhere from 28 – 35 Million with some predictions as high as 93 Million (based on one of his songs where he claims to have that much in his checking account). There is much controversy about his net worth due to the release of his financial information by fellow rapper 50 Cent on the Ed Lover morning show that showed his expenses being higher than his income. Since then, he has recorded 5-7 Million annually through record sales and live shows. (Source: virtualglobetrotting.com)
